LIY Team Try-On: Social Threads Edition

April 10, 2020


Erin Schrader

A new month can only mean one thing: a new LIY Team Try-On. Different month, same drill. If you’re new here, welcome! Each and every month, the LIY Team hand-picks one of our favorite retailers and raids its virtual isles to bring you our top picks. If you’re a LIY veteran, then you probably already know Social Threads is near and dear to us. With everything going on in the world, small businesses have been heavy on my heart. If it’s your first time shopping Social Threads, you should know it’s owned and operated by two of my sweet friends [and full-time moms] Sara and Maureen. Right now [through April 15] 10% of all sales will be donated to Direct Relief. Shipping is free and freaky fast. Be sure to use code LIY25 at checkout for 25% off your purchase! Now let’s get this party started.


Tank [true to size, wearing in small] // Shorts [size up if in between] // Sneakers [size up .5] 

I’m all about the basics. When I bought my first tee from Z Supply brand, I was instantly hooked so when I spotted this tank, I knew I needed it in my closet for summer. Super soft, regular bra friendly and not clingy [thank goodness after all of these quarantine snacks]. But the real star of the outfit? These sneaks. I love that these have the look of the oh so popular $500 sneakers without the $500 price tag. Even better? They feel awesome on my feet and are freaking cute and fun to wear.

Dress [true to size, wearing in small // Bag // Removable Strap // Denim jacket [true to size, wearing in small] // Tory Burch Millers [size up .5] // Converse [true to size]

I’m not one to be usually wearing a dress these days but make the dress the equivalent of your favorite tee and I’m game. I love that this has an added little twist in the front which gives it a fun and different look and that you can rock it under a jacket, alone, with sandals, with sneakers, the world is your oyster here. Now that we’ve talked about the dress, let’s divert our attention to this scuba-like water resistant bag which is as fun to carry as it is to look at. Simply pick your strap of choice and swap out whenever you want a brand-new look! Summer, my margarita and I are awaiting your arrival.


Sweater [Ivory, TTS in XS] // White Girlfriend Jeans [Size down if in between] // Sandals [TTS] // Glasses [Rose Gold] // Phone Case

This light colored outfit is perfect for springtime! This spring sweater is lightweight and super soft. Move aside, all my other sweaters, because this is my new favorite! I paired this sweater with a cute pair of white girlfriend jeans. I love that with a girlfriend cut, I don’t have all the rolls of fabric that seem to happen with white skinny jeans! They look fresh and are super comfy and I am sure I will be wearing them all spring and summer long!


Top [size up if in between, wearing in XS] // Jeans [on sale! True to size, wearing in regular length for 5’2”] // Sandals [SO comfortable! True to size]

Summer concerts I am READY for you, whenever that may be! BUT this top is all sorts of Summer ready and it can’t come soon enough! So much to love about this top; the smocked detail on the top, the babydoll fit and the flutter sleeve! So feminine and flirty but in the best way! AND if you are flatter chested just throw on some petals and you can give your girls a little break! Aka this is the perfect top for anything Summer!


Z Supply Camo Midi Dress [TTS, wearing medium] // Sam Edelman Sandals [size up .5] 

My favorite thing to wear in the Spring and Summer is a dress, whether it’s casual or dressed up, it’s what makes me most comfortable [especially now with a bump!]. I love the length and camo print of this dress, and the side slits will keep it nice and breezy on warmer days!

UPF 50 One Size Fits All Fedora

Spending more and more time outdoors means more and more of a need for sun protection! I love that this hat has a UPF 50 rating to keep my noggin protected while looking cute! Perfect for a quick walk, the beach, or heading to the wineries! Plus, it has an adjustable interior making it one size fits all!


Floral Smocked Top [Wearing is size small, size up if in between] // Raw Hem, High Waisted Jeans [Wearing in size 26, TTS]

First of all, wow I was so excited to put on real clothes today! This outfit from Social Threads has me so ready for warmer weather! This floral smocked top is the perfect top for spring and brings that feminine vibe to your wardrobe! I paired it with these raw hem, high-waisted jeans and I couldn’t be more in love! As soon as we get the opportunity to leave our homes, you can count on seeing me in this outfit!


Ruffle Hem Top [slightly oversized fit, TTS wearing in medium] // White Jeans [size down, wearing size 6] // Sandals [true to size] // Phone Case

I have high hopes of wearing this outfit for Easter. While I’ll most-likely be hanging at home [waiting on the Easter bunny], I’m looking forward to dressing the part. At this point, I’ll take any excuse to wear something other than sweatpants– add that to the list of things I never thought I would say. Realistically, I’ll probably snap a family photo then swap out my sandals for sneakers when it comes to egg hunting. Egg hunting or not, this lightweight sweater is perfect for transitioning into spring! I’m loving all-things pastel this season and this mint shade is no exception. It is slightly oversized for a flowy fit and I went with my regular size medium. If you’re in between sizes, size down and you’ll have plenty of wiggle room!


For your Pinning pleasure…
